Staff Sgt. Alejandro Gutierrez, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, U.S. Disciplinary Barracks, holds the door as the rest of his Special Reaction Team and the U.S. Penitentiary's Special Operations Response Team enters a housing unit during training Aug. 10 at the Joint Regional Correctional Facility at Fort Leavenworth, Kan. The training not only benefits the teams, but also helps identify anything in the facility that needs addressed before inmates begin arriving in a few months. The 464-inmate capacity, medium- and minimum-security facility will receive about 80 inmates from Fort Sill, Okla., in October and more in November.
